Lying on a beautiful, long stretch of private beach, this tropical resort is situated in 400 lush acres of an 18th-century sugar plantation.

Why not grab a tube and float down the ‘lazy river’ or try one of the slides. Water sports are available on the sparkling Caribbean Sea. There’s also a daily kids' club, leaving you with time to recharge in the full-service spa*, or why not try out the Championship golf course*, tennis and the popular aerobics classes.

If there are people out there who limit their travel because of age, mobility concerns, or other health issues, here is a resort which caters to you. My family and I have just returned from yet... Read more another glorious stay at Hilton Rose Hall and I wanted to write a review that pertains to the young at heart but, not necessarily, the physically blessed. I am not a good traveller as a result of a bad car accident, and I arrive in poor physical shape!! However, Conrod, the gentleman who has become our "personal chauffeur" over the last five visits, meets us at the door of the airport and, in fifteen minutes, whisks us away to the resort. No more sitting!!!! Wheelchairs are available if necessary. Reception is a breeze, and if the resort is not full, we are in our room in minutes. As I've learned from the past that it is possible to pre-book a spa appointment, I will quickly eat at Fresh, the wonderful all-day buffet, and make my laboured but very short way over to the Soothe spa to put my aching body into Kerissa's wonderful hands for a hot-stone massage. If I'm not able to walk, the massage table and she gladly come to our room. Throughout the course of my stay, I'll frequently wander into Soothe for a body scrub or wrap, a facial, or another of those lovely massages. All of the staff there are incredibly welcoming and helpful!! I can't participate in more vigorous activities, (other than aquasizes), (and as I'm a very-strong-sun-dodging multiple skin cancer operation survivor, and one who has a difficult time staying in bed - even the great beds at this resort-), I rise early in the morning and wend my way down to the beach for an early morning walk and an ocean swim which allows me to get far away from shore and greet the sun good morning. Even that early, the ground staff are busily at work preparing the beach and lounges for the less quiet parts of the day, and they so pleasantly wish me a wonderful new day, and keep a cautionary eye on the (crazy?) woman who doesn't move too easily on land but luxuriously lounges in the buoyant water of the Caribbean. If the Sea is too rough, although that seldom happens as there is a reef about a third of a mile out that lessens the impact of the bigger waves, the pool is also quiet at this time and is used by many of the less young to get their morning exercise. There is a large water park with slides, (even a very big one that I was dared to try...and did... to the hilarious amusement of the onlookers) that, after breakfast is done, provides restful water time for quieter swimmers and dippers... accompanied by young parents and very much younger children who can get crowded out by more boisterous participants later in the day. There are also three hot tubs of various sizes for those who wish to just blissfully soak out their aches and pains. (And there are always lifeguards and waterpark workers who are available if there is any need for assistance). If you are in the waterpark area, Mangoes provides interesting and delicious lunches which appeal to the young and not so young. If you are a fan of Jerk pork or chicken and the Jamaican treat, Festival, The Seaside Grill offers another tempting option for lunch. There are three quite highly regarded a-la-carte restaurants available for evening meals, and they tend to be more formal and quiet, but, as I travel as part of a multi-generational family group, I prefer to eat most of my meals at Fresh. I get my morning specially crafted omelette from Sylvester,The Omelette King, a unique Caribbean soup and variety of salads and fresh buns for lunch (while trying to ignore the tempting deserts), being greeted and served by Denny, Alwayne, et al, and a varied and delicious selection of both Caribbean and traditional offerings for supper...and many thank-yous to Kelley who tries so hard to convince my grandchildren to sample new offerings and free them from the traditional pasta, pizza, and fries!! However, it is vacation time, so we don't really fuss. The bars will concoct both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks for even the quirkiest taste...and did for both my grandchildren and myself. At the west side of the resort is the front nine of the Cinnamon Hills Golf Course, and these sculptured holes provide a casual walker both with wonderful views (including ruins of the Rose Hall Plantation buildings) and manicured gentle strolls - although a too-early walk may have you dodging golf balls. As well, although a complimentary shuttle is available from the resort, a fifteen to twenty minute stroll will also bring you to The Shoppes At Rose Hall where an eclectic variety of goods is available. On certain evenings, vendors are allowed to display their home-made goods which provide interesting choices if you're looking for gifts or souvenirs. And at the end of an active but unstressed day, I can retire to my desperately needed oh-so-wonderful Hilton bed!!... Rose Hall can definitely provide the younger at heart with a tempting and easily accommodated holiday for those who might be less well accommodated elsewhere. Read less
This was our 2nd time back at Hilton Rose Hall. My husband and I and our 2 toddlers (4 years old and 21 months old toddler) had a fantastic time. Check-In: We arrived at around 4pm and there... Read more was a bit of a line. From what I recalled last year, there was a separate check-in line for HH Golds and Diamonds but we were ushered to the main line so we had to wait a bit. After checking in we went to our room which was a partial ocean view and facing the golf course. Room: Nice and cozy. The view of the golf course was spectacular. Definitely much more quiet at this end of the hotel compared to the partial ocean view facing the lazy river view we stayed in last year. Both are very nice though and it's a nice to have a chance to try out both. I wouldn't say I like one side better than the other- they are both good but different. We received free wifi as we are HH Gold but it was a bit slow at times but still better than not having wifi in the room. Food: We are not picky with food and we enjoyed what they had at the food at the resort. For Breakfast, we ate at the buffet- typical breakfast food like omelet, sausage, bacon, pancake etc. For lunch we ate at mangoes and also sea side grill- the patties at mangoes was fantastic and the jerk chicken and pork at sea side is a must try. Thanks to Nathan, Kevin and Sheldon for taking care of us during lunch time. For dinner, we at the buffet. We found it a better arrangement as we were never sure when the kids would wake from their naps. We really enjoyed the variety of food at the buffet. We love the tropical fruits that were available at dinner. Angelitia, took good care of us as soon as we arrived- she would know all our drinks by heart and even made sure our son would eat his dinner. Cabana: We rented the cabana for our first full day after arriving at the resort. It's definitely convenient to rent as all the chairs are reserved early but the price went up from our visit last year. I remember it being only $50 but this time around it was $99. You get a 15% discount if you are a HH Gold or Diamond. Beach: Beach was ok. We went to the beach for only 2 days while we were there Lazy River: Definitely fun. We were there everyday and spent hours just lounging. The kids enjoyed every minute. In the morning around 10am, we found that there would not be enough tubes but it could have been the week we went was busy. I definitely recommend this resort to others especially if you have kids. It's a really family friendly resort. I know for sure we will be back next year! Read less

Read more Fifth trip to the Hilton Rose Hall in Feb '14 - first time was because my Mom wanted the pillow top beds...2 through 5...because 30 minutes after I land, I'm officially "on vacation". The staff is phenomenal - Sondre welcoming me "home" as I arrive for my first lunch at Fresh; Kellie bidding my children and me the same as we head to dinner in Fresh. Denny brings us whatever beverage we can dream up with a huge smile and efficient service. In some ways, sad, but in five trips, have not ventured beyond the buffet - the reality is that I haven't felt the need to...the buffet is convenient (especially when travelling with children and/or an older parent) and I always find plenty of wonderful selections that keeping me more than satisfied (generally manage to gain about 5 lbs per trip despite the exercise :) )...Sylvester is the master of the morning omelette - made "child size" just the way I want it...plentiful and varied fresh fruit (the busier the resort, the greater the choices - I've been there both during very quiet and full capacity) and a salad bar help me to balance (or justify), my enjoyment of the desert bar as well... Kamar kicked my butt (but made it tighter) on the scenic but harda## morning fitness walk around the back 9 of the Cinnamon Hills course...and then pumped me up during aqua fit in the main pool. The spa is a favorite...never had a bad experience, and have had amazing ones with Kerissa... The rooms - they're hotel rooms - pretty much standard grade...I don't spend much time in mine, so it certainly has all I need... The beds and pillows are amazing - something that is critical to my physically fragile Mom. The bathrooms are bathrooms...not the biggest, but not the smallest I've seen. In five trips, never had an issue with hot water. The beach is relatively short, (if you want a long beach to walk, go to Negril...not MoBay), however, the quality of the beach is excellent - with well maintained sand...no coral or rock outcroppings. The swimming water - both within the buoys and outside is excellent. Sandy bottom, very little seaweed or rock. Reef beyond the shore can be walked to (maybe with the occasional stroke). Not exceptional as far as snorkelling, but effectively acts as a first breakwall so that the surf is generally of the fun to play in type waves and not the dangerous type. Water activity staff is friendly and will take you on a catamaran ride if you're not a confident sailor. Kids of all ages (including mine), love the waterslides and the lazy river. Kevin at tennis is also a great pro who has patience with younger aspiring tennis pros (aka my son). Nothing in life is perfect, and of course, you can find things to complain about if you want, but my biggest complaint is usually that my week in paradise comes to an end too quickly... Read less
Clean, modern A/C shuttles whisk you from Montego Bay Airport. One takes the coastal highway east about 20min. to half hour to the old plantation property of Rose Hall. The Hilton is an old style... Read more resort hotel with an east and west wing having convention rooms and other public areas in the middle as well as the front desk. The rooms have been updated with better large flatscreen TV's, fantastic mattresses and pillows and nice marble top vanities in the bathroom. The original tub and shower combination is still intact meaning a slight climb in and out for showering. This was one of the best sleeps at a resort property we have ever had. The WiFi is not especially robust - some uploads/downloads took a bit of time. Our room faced west and we had a view of the King Frog Bar, pool and ocean. There is one main pool and then a pool by the river raft ride with swim up bar. Two hot tubs are beside the river ride, one being adult only. The water slides are a lot of fun and just large enough to thrill those that don't go in for rides of this type. During busy convention times the a la carte Three Palms and Luna di Mare are easy to get reservations. Luna di Mare struggles with the concept of antipasti. The food presentation was excellent and they tried to make a proper Italian dish - some are better than others. One day service was first rate, the other night was exactly opposite. Do not reserve for groups larger than 8! Not all wines listed were available.Those that were available were all quite warm. A Ravenswood Zinfandel was more expensive than would be the case at home in Ontario and there was also a service charge and tax. A house white and red are included. Go with the Spanish house wine included as it is palatable enough.The Three Palms has the best food and service. The "A" team of servers was excellent, knowledgeable and attentive. I wore a shirt with 2 embroidered palm trees on it and asked them to call me "Two Palms". They obliged and we had great fun with it while there. The local sea food of the day was excellent the 2 times I had it as was the soup of the day. The casual Seaside Bar and Grill had a variety of flavourful food. Do have the jerk chicken - it is very tasty. The service here is first rate for a casual diner style restaurant. Fresh, the buffet, always had great food morning, noon or night. Don't expect much in the way of service - they will provide drinks and clean up. If you are familiar with newer all inclusive establishments this may underwhelm. Having only 2 true a la carte restaurants is a bit boring for some people. If I come here with the expectation of great service and weather, I am able to suffer having only 2 a la carte restaurants. The one thing I will suggest is a choice of 2 each of white and red wine for your all inclusive choice. For reserve wine list pricing be reasonable and drop the service charge. The last thing I will comment on is the Executive Director of food, Rob de Bekker was a very amiable and approachable person. It was nice to see senior management casually walking about the property, interested in their staff and guests. It showed in the happy demeanor of all the Hilton Rose Hall staff. I would visit again.

We flew West Jet Feb 22-March 1, 2014 for one week at the Hilton Rose Hall Resort and Spa, Montego Bay. We were met at the airport by very friendly staff, loaded onto the bus for the drive to the... Read more resort (after buying a Red Stripe to take along for the ride). Arriving at the hotel, our bags were taken out from the bus, safely brought to reception where we quickly checked in. At first we were told (at 11am) our room may not be ready, but the Receptionist checked and we were quickly taken up to our room on the 7th floor (luggage at the same time). The room was clean, very cool temperature (a wall mount thermostat you could adjust on your own), a safe in the closet and fridge with water bottles. We changed quickly into our bathing suits to head out to the pool with our two kids (8 and 6 years old). The main pool was great and clean, then we ventured to the water slides/lazy river (take rubber water shoes to swim at this pool as the bottom of this pool is very rough on the feet). It was great fun, with a bit of a strong current (hold on to your little ones and keep an eye on them). More shade in this area from the palm trees. There is more bar service delivery at the mail pool; I think it was harder for the servers to find people at the lazy river to deliver food and drinks too (cause there is more fun happening from the river, tubes and slides). You will get served if you sit at both out door lunch spots, and at the main pool servers will bring food to you if you ask (just tip them a little and they are so very thankful for the money). Food in the buffet was good (a little slow for the pasta bar as it is made per person, so be patient), there is something for everyone! The nightly entertainment was pretty good, my favorite was the reggae singers - amazing and everyone was up dancing. There was a steel drum band too, and a kids magician show (my son had a blast up on stage). There is local shopping just 7 minutes away. A daily bus (free of charge) goes back and forth from the front lobby area till 5pm each day, just wait outside for the bus to arrive at 10am and it is a very short drive away (safe....clean)....good to pick up little things and less expensive than the gift shop at the resort - which my the way has everything you could possibly need if you have forgotten something just a little more expensive. My husband did the sail boat, canoeing, para-sailing and snorkel tours. All very safe, and recommended. I didn't try any of the restaurants - too hard for the kids to sit through. If you are planning to take advantage of the restaurants on site, please sign up on our day of arrival. They book up very fast!! The beach area was always busy. Beach chairs do get taken very fast at all areas of the resort, but we were always able to find chairs to sit on....we never went early to put our towels on the chairs. Our bus return to the airport was without problems, very quick and on time with a helpful bus driver. Flight back home to Ottawa was sad...missing the warmth of Jamaica. OH, I left the maid some money in the fridge to leave me extra bottle water each day....she left me full case of water!!! I didn't expect that but was thankful as we used the bottle water to brush our teeth (even though we were told the tap water was safe to use). No one on our trip got sick...all healthy and enjoyed every moment at this resort! Read less
